Michael Clark Company

to a simple, rock ’n’ roll . . . song.

British choreographer Michael Clark, who made his name in the 1980s for his unconventional style – combining precision and chaos, the classical and the raw, ballet and post-punk – is returning to Berlin. His new three-part evening merges diverse elements: a complex choreographic work set to a minimalistic piano composition by Erik Satie; a bright, bold piece set to Patti Smith’s punk songs; finished off by a daring, vibrant third act set to the music of David Bowie, in which this rebel of dance pays homage to the icon of pop – one of Clark’s eternal role models and sources of inspiration.
